The underlying VOIP technology is great, but the interface on Android is a mess. A call comes through, and it's a crapshoot as to what sort of experience I'll get trying to answer. It will either be in walkie-talkie mode SCREAMING in my ear, or it might be at normal phone volume. Then good luck actually ending the call. Notifications come many minutes after a missed call, or you'll get missed call notifications hours after a successful call. The Skype service seems to have no way of knowing that I'm connected successfully on my PC version of Skype, and will begin ringing - notifying me of a call that I initiated and am currently engaged in. This frustrating experience resulted in this review, as well as me uninstalling the app.

Edit: Calls no longer work. I can receive calls and hear the caller, but they can't hear me. Definitely going to stop paying for this garbage. Calls work OK, but it won't play voicemails. I have cleared the cache and reinstalled the app. It just doesn't work. Support forums show this has been an issue on the mobile Skype apps for years. I assume at this point they have no real interest in fixing it.

This app is fantastic, functional and elegant, when it works. I've had issues where if I reply to a message from a notification on my phone, it won't send until I open the app. Also if I send a message and quickly close the app it will not send in the background and wont be sent until I open the app again. I can't figure out how to fix this. However, when messages do send they are quick and easy to read. The UI is highly customizable and looks good. Video calls always work well with a good connection on both ends
